I'm using a Woodgrain Churchill, and I have it inked with FPN Starry Night.

It's a delight to use.

What a beautiful pen - and it looks great against that Clairefontaine cover. Is that an Age Bag?

I've just inked up a CS 15 that arrived today. My first CS. Exciting.

First CS? That IS exciting!

What colour,? How's it writing? Which ink?

 

Oh, and yes, it is an Age Bag.

Hello Gerd, Good to hear that you are still using the 388...but I bet it's not as often as those beautiful P75's!  :D

It's a marbled green. Medium nib. Seems to write very smoothly. Inked with Diamine Jet Black.

 

Here's a pic of the pen.

So far I have only used my (recently acquired) CS Windsor today. I was writing earlier and suddenly, no ink flow. Luckily, I had just run out, and refilled with its standard color, Diamine Royal Blue. I have lately taken to filling it with my Visconti travelling inkwell, and it makes the whole process so less messy!

Montague with ESSRI and CS100 with Diamine Racing Green. All the vintage ones are sleeping - resting until the day when they are needed.

Hi Marie...how did the 15 perform today?

 

That would be the later vintage 15.  :D
